[BBC]PlayStation 'will reclaim lead' - Page 2

post #11 of 21
Yea, even the hardcore PS3 fan would say that a 10 year product cycle is just silly. Still, while I don't see the PS3 as cement a solid lead over any platform, I still feel like it is coming into its own and is actually a decent piece of hardware.

Well, no...and that's obvious. But, the fact is Sony executives often talk big...and the OPs quote is an example. What I have a problem with is Sony claiming they will be surpassing everything in ten years. Congrats! Who the heck cares, we'll be well into the next generation by then.

Well I think its possible they can beat the 360, only if the 360 keeps slowing down the way it is right now, but I don't there they can beat the wii. But in ten years that won't matter, new consoles will be out.

The 360 is only slow cus theres not many good games coming out for a couple months.

Like Gears of War 2 and Halo Wars, thats what im waiting for.

And they will probably release the PS3 slimline which will extend the lifecycle a couple years. But I agree that M$ will have something way better than the PS3.

And they have had a full 16 months more to work on it than sony has had to work on the PS4. And they still have to make the PS3 slimline.

The "10 year life cycle" simply means Sony is going to keep the console production and game rolling for 10 years. It doesn't suggest that PS3 will be the ONLY Sony gaming platform within this period. So, PS4 could be introduced to the market as their new platform in 3 years while Sony still sell PS3. Just like how PS2 is coexisting with PS3 at this moment.

I think it would be very difficult for PS3 to out sale 360 in total numbers within North America due to 360's gaming library and xbox live. The best PS3 can do is to sell as much as 360 in the coming months. Unless Playstation Home turns out to be very successful. But again, 360 has a more uphill fight with PS3 in global market. The sale of 360 in Japan is NON-EXISTENCE and now they lost europe. For some reason, ppl outside US are more bound to the Playstation brand than Xbox. In addition, xbox's game genre is narrower than Playsation when take Jap Devs into consideration.

Wii is not a direct threat to either PS3 or 360. People who bought Wii either already own PS3 / Xbox or they won't buy them even if there is no Wii. The gaming experience and title library are complete different.

AGREED!

New consoles will be out by the time the 10-year cycle is up. And MGS and GT5 must be the only good games out for the console.

Sony has said multiple times that the PS3 is more than likely their last venture into console gaming. The amount of money they've been losing per system won't be enough to justify them attempting a PS4 or future-gen console. Microsoft has been (or at least had been) losing money per console as well, but I think they've managed to recoup their losses totally or at least their production costs have decreased to compensate.

Either way, Microsoft has much more financial backing to continue console development after the Xbox 360, and they've expressed their interest in doing so on multiple levels. Gates himself has been a major proponent of future-gen consoles by Microsoft as a way to merge gaming with other entertainment venues to create a single unit for a home entertainment system, as well as tap into the gaming market.

First I think you must think that Sony is alot smaller than they are. Sony is quite the revenue generator in it's own right. I think I dug up the info at one point, and they make a pretty big share of money.

Like everyone before me has said...just because something has a life cycle of 10 years doesn't mean that it will be the flagship for 10 years. The PS2 is almost 8 years old now I think. It still sells well.

I bet that if you account for the amount of RROD loss in the X360 cost structure they aren't making all that much money on those bricks.

FWIW, I wouldn't be surprised if Sony didn't try to hammer home a PS4 in a standard console sense. Like fitting a square peg into a round hole for most consumers nowadays.
